How to choose the right cue for you?
In our experienced the two most important aspects of selecting the cue are:
A. Balance – How does the cue feel when held?
B. Weight – Is your cue too light, too heavy or just right?
However; the potential ongoing list of specifications, in search of the right cue will only grow with further experience of playing the game. Other specifications include:
Shaft Material – Traditionally Ash or Maple
Ferrule size – Traditionally between 9mm – 11mm
